Synthematik presents the long-awaited debut album “Budet Laskovyj Dozhd…” from the Belarusian synthpop / darkwave project Kosmodromm! The project was formed in 2008 by Eiden Dark and D-Emsi. After a couple of self-released singles, they teamed up with Synthematik to release Kosmodromm 1.0 EP in February 2010. The EP received a lot of positive feedback recognizing the undeniable originality of the project. Now Kosmodromm returns with the first full-length release. “Budet Laskovyj Dozhd…” (which means “There will come soft rains”) is a direct quote of Ray Bradbury’s famous short story of the same name telling about a post-nuclear war world. The lyrics on the album touch upon similar things with the focus on Chernobyl, the dreadful disaster witnessed by both musicians in their childhood. Music-wise, the album showcases Kosmodromm’s vision of dark electronica balancing between synthpop and darkwave. With extensive use of vintage analog synths and the deep, soft voice of Eiden Dark, Kosmodromm manage to create a unique captivating atmosphere hard to compare with anything else. “Budet Laskovyj Dozhd…” is not another collection of club-oriented tracks, but a thoughtful conceptual work with each piece being significant to the whole picture.
